    more from this reviewer

    Love the format, love the recipes

    I read about his book in the Washington Post and immediately went out to purchase it. I have not been disappointed. It is full of great stories and easy recipes that one can create from what is already inside the fridge. I am still reading it and am truly enjoying it.

    I Also Recommend:

    A quirky fun read.

    I loved this book. It was like reading about friends or friends of friends, wondering which of the recipes they would find most enticing. It also opened the door to so many other "comfort foods", as well as gave my choices validity.

    Summer Tomato Sandwiches with just butter and cucumber; one of my personal favorites I look forward to each year when the tomatoes are ripe for pickin'. Also olive sandwiches; hard to keep the little things in a folded up piece of bread, but satisfying. . . and Jif Peanut Butter (smooth) with Claussen Dill sandwich slices across the peanut butter on your favorite bread slices. Yum.

    And, I've already bought my polenta.

    I look forward to reading this book again; it's just a book to make you smile and reminisce. I picked it up on a whim off the Barnes&Nobles employee recommendation shelf - serendipity.

    these stories are so true... and so funny!

    I keep on laughing when reading this book. It's so funny, because it's so true. I have seen so many friends of mine, including myself, between the lines. Makes a great read anytime, especially on a long and boring airport ride or anything like that. Very well written!

    I was looking for a cooking for 1 cookbook

    This book is totally useless. I love reading so even though this turned out to not really be a cookbook it was awful. It wasn't interesting or entertaining. It was just a gross list of foods people eat when they are alone and bored. I gave it a chance. I kept reading through about half the book until I had to give up. Maybe someone who likes to read those books written by chefs who talk about how they started cooking would like it.
